IMHO the underlying main problem is that OSM is steadily moving towards some kind of OpenGeoDump™:
• Something has coordinates? – Put it into the OSM database, because OSM is about coordinates!
• Don't know how to set up a GIS system? – Put it into the OSM database, because nothing beats an existing GIS setup!
• Don't know how to keep data up-to-date? – Put it into the OSM database, because it's the duty of OSM people to maintain your data!
(You might notice some kind of pattern.)
